Time Out

Sorry, everybody, but I've got my hands full with a family health emergency, so no significant post today.

Booster Gold Am Not Here

For many reasons (not the least of which was that as a poor college student I didn't have $30 in discretionary funding to spend at that time), I didn't pick up Bizarro Comics when it was released in 2001. I only finally read it last week, and was pleasantly surprised to find Booster Gold making a very brief cameo appearance when Mr. Mxyzptlk takes a look at what goes on inside Bizzaro's addled brain.

My brain might be just as addled. I've always thought that "Metropolis' Golden Guardian" would be a great nickname for Booster Gold... if it wasn't already the name of another DC character!

Jim Harper debuted as the shield-carrying policeman known as Guardian in 1942, but his clone used the "Golden Guardian" name in the 1970s. They were originally created and named by the comic book gods Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, you know, the same guys who get credit for a certain shield-carrying super soldier.

Of course, that pedigree and seniority only carry weight if you respect them. if Booster really wanted the title, he'd just take it. Maybe I should, too.

Bizarro would approve.

New Release: Dark Nights Death Metal 5

This week's unexpected Booster Gold cameo (there on the bottom right between Beast Boy's legs):

That's Dark Nights: Death Metal #5 where Booster Gold has joined the heroes and villains of Earth assembled to confront the Batman Who Laugh's evil multiverse. This is set up to be the final battle at the end of the DC Universe, and it must be a big one; there are still 6 books yet to come in the Dark Nights: Death Metal event (at least one of which we'll be buying for the covers alone).

You can find an issue preview at CBR.com, but don't expect it to make a lot of sense. This series is not about making sense.

Skeets says buy it if you want to.
